I am a log truck driver . I got hurt on the job sept 2012 , injuring my shoulder (rotator cuff) . I had surgery in Dec 2013 . My benefit amount was calculated using a previous job's earnings . My company is stating that because I am considered a season worker and because I was only with the company for 4 months they need only pay me 2/3 rd's of what I made at that previous job . The amounts are very different...my AWW for the previous job gives me a weekly benefit of 404.00 , but the AWW the state has my job at (and what the AWW I calculated from all my wage statements I have for those 4 months) is MUCH larger and would increase my weekly benefits to 634.00 I hired a lawyer who is wonderful but am just trying to ask around for others insights , knowledge etc ..We just had mediation 17 days ago on this ..I gave my statement ..they made statements but no resolution was made that day ..I am just wondering how long will it be before we hear something from them ..I did look the actual statue/law up on how they determine the AWW and what defines a seasonal worker and it says that if you work 26 weeks or less a year you are a seasonal worker ...my company works right through the year with no mud season ( hauling chips during that time ) ..like I said so far we are very pleased with our attorney , I am just sort of rooting around for myself through other peoples cases to get a sense of what to expect ..of course I know every case is different though ! any insight or thoughts are appreciated !! thank you guys !
